[audio]Various Artists - Far Afield: A Webbed Hand Compilation [wh055]
Somewhere in the spectrum between Musique Concrete and Phonography, is a vast gray area that is disowned and disputed by either side. This compilation treats this no-man's land as its playground. Field recordings they are, with some processing, but not just walls of rhythmic noise. Sounds of nature, sounds of the city, using the non-instrumental rhythms and melodies of the source recording as the focal points, coaxing the music and beauty out of unplanned, un-orchestrated events...

[audio]Kirill Platonkin - Transfiguration [wh179] - Kirill Platonkin
Kirill Platonkin's first release for Webbed Hand is a trio of shimmery drone-ambient blended with field recordings. About the Album: "The idea of creating this album is based on a conclusion, that a Human Being with his consciousness, is a very complicated psychic system, representing a Transfigurator. The point is, that everyday we get a lot of information: positive or negative impressions, news, observations, reflections and so on...

[audio]Mystified & Others - Fractal Reflections [wh063] - Mystified
The indomitable Mystified has teamed up with some artists of his acquaintance to assemble this mix of unusual ambient works, based around a series of samples generated by programs that convert fractal information into sound files. "The pieces originated from fractal midi. "High Sun" is a fractal piece converted to .wav with very little interpretation. The piece was created using the program "Gingerbread"...

[audio]Saluki Regicide - Actress [wh007] - C.P. McDill
Saluki Regicide returns with another selection of haunted head music to disturb your inner child. These are some very strange recordings. 20th Century sound artifacts are processed and manipulated into something wholly new, and at times unsettling. Unquiet architectures of auditory nostalgia, inhabiting some remote site between melody and microsound, hounded by history, ambushed by alchemy. Thank you for listening to this Webbed Hand Records release...

The Light Will Fill the Darkness and Obliterate It is a poetic and richly textured work by Canadian sound artist K.M. Krebs. These tracks are blended together into a shifting exploration as evocative and powerful as the titles they bear. I find this to be excellent headphone music, and with eyes closed I am easily abducted into very strange realms. K.M. Krebs has become a well-known and respected artist in the netlabel scene...

Djinnestan is the quieter spawn of Saluki Regicide. Selling the Wind is a collection of tranquil ambient constructions which have been derived from more "complicated" tracks among my other recording projects. It has something in common with the Rain compositions as well, in that they are mellow studies in repetition with variation, but these differ in their brevity. As a collection, they are a pleasure to listen to...

A project which began as a spinoff of Saluki Regicide, but which took on a personality of its own as a pattern began to emerge. This is a peculiar sound art of a very diverse nature, but unified by the presence of Shortwave signals. These bizarre tracks may bend your mind, if you are in a susceptible state. An eclectic CD alternating between abstract and rhythmic, this body of work is dedicated to those who get the warm-n-fuzzies from hunching over shortwave radios, grooving on static and foreig...

Fans of ghostheory and Mayfairgrin will be pleased to hear this new drone-ambient work by A. Latham, which as the title suggests is an inspired meditation upon the concept of Shekinah, often understood as the feminine aspect of the divine. Hypnotic drones... warm sounds... veiled in a deeply shadowed darkness. Black and white cinema. A bit of noir, a bit of horror. A deep melody plays its dreary song while metallic sounds bounce and echo off the tight walls.....

The strength of this work is the skillful use of processed acoustic instruments (djembe, bowed guitar, environmental sounds) woven into a richly illustrative tapestry that engages the mind without overstimulating it. Here sounds happen in washes and highlights, like some kind of impressionistic watercolor painting...

[audio]Saluki Regicide - See Things [wh083] - C.P. McDill
This is the first long-form recording by Saluki Regicide outside of the Rain project. Using as a foundation a long-form composition by Akashic Crow's Nest, Saluki Regicide adds layers of characteristic embellishments: obscure samples, bizarre rhythmic loops, peculiar washes of sound, snippets of string melody, all adding up to an interesting meeting of styles. Saluki Regicide is a recording project of C.P...

[audio]Grove of Whispers - The Somnambulist [wh239] - Grove of Whispers
Grove of Whispers, a dark ambient project of John Tocher, debuts on Webbed Hand with a long-form nightscape pervaded with haunted sounds. About the album: "Noise: unwanted sound. Distraction.

The Somnambulist: a mixture of various noise sources you might find in a nocturnal environment...

[audio]Djinnestan - Rain 1 [wh028] - C.P. McDill
The Webbed Hand "Rain" series in now graced by a contribution from Djinnestan. Much like the shorter works of Djinnestan, this 74-minute piece is subtle and enchanted. As if in a dream you find yourself strolling in a fairytale forest, dark and misty, peopled by the figments of childhood imaginings. This album is ideal for meditation, trance-work, and quiet activities. It is recommended that you play it at low volume, as it is meant to be listened to peripherally, not directly...

Electronic and instrumental sounds are blended with field recordings in a relaxing continuum with no dissonance, shocks or surprises. The whole effect is warm and agreeably trance-inducing. This piece has a brain-massaging bass pulse and a nice panoramic sound arrangement...

[audio]Materia Confusa - Axis mundi [wh215] - Materia Confusa
Materia Confusa's fourth release on Webbed Hand is a pair of musique concrete compositions built around some intriguingly deep concepts. About: "The title track, Axis Mundi, revolves literally around the idea of its namesake. The sound of a Jacobs Ladder creates the core central rhythm which is yet another incarnation of the theme. An attempt at representing both ascending, and descending, movement around the cosmic axis...
